Grafix® Demonstrates Overwhelming Efficacy in Landmark Stem ...

Grafix® Demonstrates Overwhelming Efficacy in Landmark Stem Cell Study for the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers Grafix closes three times as many wounds as standard of care - the largest relative improvement ever reported in a multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical trial for DFU COLUMBIA, Md. - August 13,2013 - Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIR), reported today that its multicenter, randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing the safety and effectiveness of Grafix® to standard of care in patients with chronic diabetic foot ulcers had met the pre-specified stopping rules for overwhelming efficacy as determined by the data monitoring committee during a planned interim analysis. For the primary endpoint, 62% of patients receiving Grafix had complete wound closure compared to only 21% (p<0.0001) of patients who received conventional treatment for their wounds - a relative improvement of 191% and the largest ever reported from such a study. A total of 131 patients were enrolled with the interim analysis being conducted on the first 97 to complete the trial. The trial also reached statistical significance in favor of Grafix on all top-line secondary endpoints, demonstrating faster wound closure and a reduction in the number of treatments needed to achieve wound closure. In the crossover phase of the trial, patients whose wounds failed to close after 12 weeks of standard of care had an 80% closure rate when switched to Grafix. Importantly, patients randomized to receive standard of care were 74% more likely to experience an adverse event than those receiving Grafix (p=0.008). As a result, the blinded phase of the trial is being discontinued immediately and all patients randomized to the control arm will be offered treatment with Grafix. “Today, Osiris has established a new standard in diabetic wound care and has demonstrated to the world the tremendous impact stem cell products can have in medicine,” said C. Randal Mills, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer. “Diabetic foot ulcers afflict 25% of all diabetics and are responsible for more hospitalizations than any other diabetic complication. With 25 million diabetics in the United States, the cost to our health care system is enormous. Through this rigorous study we have shown that Grafix can heal more patients, in less time, and with fewer complications.”

Initiative Live, Work and Play in these ten communities within Greater Boston: Charlestown, Chelsea, East Boston, Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Revere, Somerville, Winthrop For Massachusetts to double its innovation economy in the next ten years, it must expand where businesses settle and people live, work and play. The Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development and the Metro North communities are working together because Metro North has the potential for smart and dynamic growth. It is within six miles of our financial and innovation clusters. It is connected by the Orange and Blue lines—and soon by the Green and Silver lines. It has great walkable neighborhoods, squares and corners. It has slowly been transforming its economic future for years—revitalizing old industrial sites, welcoming new businesses and immigrants from around the world, and building market rate and mixed-income housing. In November 2013, Chelsea, Malden, Melrose and Revere received MassWorks infrastructure grants. See: http://www.mass.gov/hed/economic/eohed/pro/infrastructure/massworks/. In October, MassDOT announced an $83 million silver line extension connecting South Station and the Seaport District with East Boston and Chelsea, with service expected to begin in late 2015, and the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs announced a $3 million multi-use path providing pedestrian, bicycle, and greenway connections, as well as access to this new transit. The next step, starting November 2013, is a planning process that will involve the communities, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and the Commonwealth. The process will identify “priority development” and “priority preservation” areas on a local, regional, and state level. In addition, MAPC will analyze opportunities to invest in infrastructure, and to change zoning and permitting, to advance development and preservation. Meanwhile, the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development is working to promote new and existing businesses in Metro North that involve innovation, the creative economy (including advertising, architecture, arts or other intellectual property products), and food (restaurants and food suppliers). On October 28, 2013, we held a Blue and Orange Innovation Event at East Boston’s Small Business Incubator space. Below are a few examples of what we learned during Secretary Bialecki’s in-depth Metro North tour this spring and summer:...

Accident No.: DCA14MR002 Accident Type: Railroad Train ...

course of the investigation. On December 1, 2013, about 0719 eastern standard time, southbound Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) passenger train number 8808 derailed at milepost 11.35 on track number 2 of the Metro-North Hudson Line in The Bronx, New York. Train movements on this line are governed by a traffic control system. The train originated in Poughkeepsie, New York with a destination of Grand Central Station in New York City. It consisted of seven passenger cars and one locomotive at the rear pushing the train. As a result of the derailment, 4 passengers died and 59 persons were transported to local hospitals for injuries. Metro-North estimated there were about 115 passengers on the train at the time of the derailment. Damage was estimated by Metro-North to be in excess of $9 million. The weather at the time of the accident was reported as 39° F with cloudy skies. Figure: Aerial view of accident scene National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators have completed the on-scene work in The Bronx. The investigation will continue at the NTSB headquarters in Washington, D.C. Preliminary results of the investigation include: The derailment occurred in a 6 degree left hand curve where speed was limited to 30 mph. Estimated train speed at the time of the derailment was at 82 mph. Detailed inspection and testing of the signal system, train brakes, and other mechanical equipment did not identify any anomalies. An inspection of the track in the derailment area did not identify any pre-accident anomalies. All cars on the train and the locomotive derailed. Between December 1 and 11, 2013, investigators completed interviews of train crews and first responders. Interview transcripts will be included in the public docket upon release. Locomotive event recorders were sent to the NTSB laboratory in Washington, D.C. for further analysis. The parties to the investigation include the Federal Railroad Administration, Metro-North Railroad, New York Public Transportation Safety Board, Teamsters Local 808, New York Police Department, New York Fire Department, and Bombardier Transportation. The Association of Commuter Rail Employees (ACRE) was initially designated as a party. However, because one of ACRE’s senior officials made unauthorized comments on the investigation to the media, ACRE was removed as a party on December 3, 2013.
